Yesterday Phil was out blowing the leaves off of our road when he came across this beautiful Box Turtle in a pile of leaves right in the middle of the road. He didn’t even see it until the leaves were just about blown to the side. And there he was. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
Thank goodness Phil was there at “just the right time”as a car might have driven right over it. This little guy was definitely saved by the leaf-blower. He was such a beautiful Box Turtle who blended right in with the leaves.
You never know what kind of views you might see when hiking at Kent’s Point. This reflection of the dock with the colorful trees in the background was just spectacular!
What do you think?
There have been quite a few Greater Yellowlegs hanging out at Boat Meadow Beach, scurrying about on the flats looking for food. (Click on blog link for other photos.)
“During winter and migration, small fish, crustaceans, snails, and other aquatic animals round out their diet.”
Did you know that the Greater Yellowlegs, which is named for their long, bright yellow legs, bobs the front half of its body up and down?
This was the perfect morning to take a walk on Coast Guard Beach. It was chilly but there was no wind and absolutely gorgeous!
The clouds were spectacular and the shore birds and seals were plentiful as we walked along the shore.
It was one of those “pinch me” days!
We were so surprised to see so many seals swimming right off-shore at Coast Guard Beach. It seemed like they would pick someone and swim with them down to the spit. (Click on blog link for other photo.)
These two guys were keeping us company…
